Y’all are pretty damn pro-union these days, and I truly wish you all well in your negotiations. There is strength in numbers, and strength in unity.
This is my first winter with an electric car (15 leaf).
thank you TRAFFIC JAMS! for reminding me of some of the best songs that have ever graced my mix tapes, er.. CD’s, or um iPod, or spotify or something. and for helping me discover new (to me anyways) music. deerhoof is always mandatory listening.
“RIP MR2, you didn’t deserve this.”
That Chinese car is much too well built to be a convincing Tesla knockoff. Look at how the taillight lines actually line up! Amateurs.

I graduated with my Masters in 2010. Damn near no one was hiring at a decent job or a decent salary at that time, and I took the only job in my field that was offered to me just to pay the bills.

I’ll spare you the five hundred miles, uphill both ways, home on summer tires story. All seasons do okayish. You probably won’t die.
I’ll back you up on your decision. In the Jalop echo-chamber, it gets easy to forget the real world exists.
